Made in Japan with precision, skill, and painstaking attention to detail, this RG550DX Genesis is Ibanez to the core. Featuring Japanese precision craftsmanship, Genesis appointments, and three distinct pickups, this Ibanez will sit well in the hands of a master guitarist.

Japanese Precision Craftsmanship
Made with pride in Ibanez's home country of Japan, the RG550DX Genesis is a superiorly crafted instrument. It features a double cutaway basswood body, with black pickguard. The neck is a Super Wizard 5-piece maple/walnut, made for fast playing. The fretboard is a bound Granadillo, showcasing 24 jumbo frets.

Genesis Appointments
The RG550DX Genesis has an Edge tremolo bridge and Gotoh machine head tuners on the headstock, just above the recognizable Ibanez logo.  The fretboard sports the always-cool white shark tooth inlays. All the hardware is a sleek black, as well as the pickguard, for a no-frills, hard playing vibe.  

Three Distinct Pickups
Ibanez outfitted this guitar with three distinct pickups in HSH configuration. The bridge humbucker is a V8, while the neck humbucker is a V7. The middle pickup is an S1 single-coil. With a five-way selector switch you'll have no trouble finding an amazing sound to suit your genre of playing.

  • Electric Guitar

Versatile, beautiful guitar


Checks all the boxes for what I was looking for. Super thin Wizard neck, H-S-H pickup config, Ibanez trem, which I feel is the best. Plays very comfortable and sounds great. A worthy successor to my mid 80s Roadstar.
